Interesting to see the ex embassy of the US and to be actually able to have a look inside. It's like a trip back in time. They have displayed all the old electronic stuff the embassy was using back then. It's a historical place after...More

The embassy is in a central location, but it was closed for renovation for one month. The exterior walls of the embassy were covered in anti-American graffiti which makes for a very interesting walk around the premises. There were posters on the grounds too (which...More

It's not a building that can be close or open... It's a wall placed in the street side. easy to see in every hour of every day or night. unlimited. It's a kind of advertising.
